The Line: Knicks (-129) vs. Cavaliers (+108)
Two struggling and hobbled teams face off tonight. Each team hoping to turn their season around. For the Cavaliers they just want Kevin Love, Collin Sexton, and Darius Garland back. Tonight they will have to do battle without them. Both teams enter with (5-7) records on the year.
I was impressed with how the Knicks played in their last outing against Brooklyn. Although, they lost; the Knicks players kept it close. When you look at the Cavaliers in their current form; they are getting destroyed. Inside the paint their presence is lacking. When it comes to closing out on shots they are one of the slower teams in the league. The Knicks aren’t a great team by any means but they have the better individual players that are active for tonight’s game.
One player I focused in on is (PF) Julius Randle. Randle is having a nice season despite his teams losing record. Randle is peaking at this point in time and before he cools off I believe he will put together a great performance tonight. His match-up is supposed to be against Larry Nance Jr. Nance Jr. is not an all-star defender. Coming to Nance Jr.’s aide will be Andre Drummond who has been battling an right Achilles injury. I am going to take advantage of that tonight.
My best bet/player prop: Julius Randle OVER 22.5 Points Scored (-104) on DraftKings Sportsbook.
